It doesn’t matter what sound [lastfm]Cyndi Lauper[/lastfm] tries out, she still seems to captivate us with her classic voice. According to People, Cyndi Lauper said:
Everything I ever sang, from jazz to rock to pop to dance, is based on rhythm and blues. I looked at what was going on in our country and I really felt like everybody’s singing the blues, so I needed to take the blues music and make it uplifting.
